Who likes coloring? 8D Here are all of my coloring pages so far, since AI is over, all in print quality (once you click the pictures).

Butterfree sniffs Floette's flower
"Sweet Scent"

Lineart of Bulbasaur and some cherry blossoms
"Petal Dance"

Spinda plays the tambourine
"Own Tempo"

Bellsprout stares up at Solrock
"Solar Beam"

Gastly surprises Cyndaquil

Piplup contemplates bubbles
"Calm Mind"

Kero-chan sits in front of a stylized drawing of the sun
"Guardian of the Sun"

AnimeIowa's mascot, Buu-chan, holding balloons next to the letters AI

Slowbro is confused; Shellder is angry

Shellder: It's our anniversary you big pink nitwit! I can't believe you forgot! I have half a mind to unfuse with you! *chew chew chew*
Slowbro: Was there something I was supposed to remember...?

Happy coloring, everyone!
soc_puppet: Dreamsheep as Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time (Default)
I'm not sure whether I actually want to add more lines to this one or not. (I mean, I did kinda overlook post-evo Shellder's shell spots, but other than that.) I rather like it as is.

Slowbro is confused; Shellder is angry

Shellder: It's our anniversary you big pink nitwit! I can't believe you forgot! I have half a mind to unfuse with you! *chew chew chew*
Slowbro: Was there something I was supposed to remember...?

Current title is Amnesia, but I could just as easily go with Oblivious or Unaware.

As an aside, Shellder/Cloyster is one of the Kanto Pokemon that I'm somewhat disappointed never got an Alolan form. Just like Baby!Kangaskhan, the design is already in the game! It would make at least as much sense for it to exist as not, if not more. Hence: Disappointment. On the day that I'm in charge of the universe, I will finally fix this.

Looks like this exact version of Kero-chan isn't going to be at the con, 'cuz I borrowed Sakura's sigil from online ^^a

For anyone 'round these parts who likes coloring, here's one final print version of Kero-chan. All the other pages are waiting until the con, as will a new version of Kero-chan with an original background.


Lineart of Kero-chan in front of Sakura's magic circle

PS: I apparently didn't communicate effectively to my AI division head that I was drawing the anime-themed coloring pages, which resulted in some worry on his part and on the part of the con exec who oversees our division. Clarifying this is why I ended up eliminating the version with this background, but they both seemed pretty pleased to have otherwise misunderstood.

Kero-chan! I'm quite pleased with how he turned out. Possibly the simplicity has something to do with it. Anyway, I managed to find a good HQ version of Sakura's magic circle, so I should be able to stick him in front of it with very little trouble once I get him scannned.

Butterfree sniffs Floette's flower

As you can see and/or read, I settled on Butterfree and Floette for "Sweet Scent". I may re-do both of their eyes, and I have plans to add ripple-lines to Butterfree's head and body, but otherwise I'd say it's done. I mean, there's some minor tweaks to do (erasing a couple of extra lines in Butterfree's wings mostly), but that's about it. Maybe I'll add some fluffy lights or something, though, IDK.

Spinda plays the tambourine

"Own Tempo". Boy am I pleased with how this one turned out. I was feeling lukewarm about it until I added all the little musical notes in addition to the big ones, but I think they really pull the image together well :) Plus, more stuff to color!

Final version of "Petal Dance"~! Well, final non-print-quality version. I'm tempted to color it in myself and use it as an icon :3 I'm looking forward to finding out what other people think at the next AI meeting tomorrow [er, later today].

I feel the need to post this picture again, because Independence Day.

[Image Description: Crocheted star-spangled mascot-eagle with glasses, a red tie, and a raised eyebrow, holding an American flag]

Now, to find a physical fan mail address for the Colbert Report. (I know, I know, I should really just ask the reference desk at the library, but I keep forgetting! Also, social phobia, even if my mom is a librarian.)

Happy fourth day of July to all, regardless of location! And, er, fifth day of July to some.

So apparently I haven't posted these pics here yet! Let's get that taken care of.

soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Creative Process)
It's done! Or, well, it was done half an hour ago. It then promptly become unfinished for a number of reasons, partly to do with my desire for perfection and the fact that I made the figures too tall so now I need to go in and re-apply the wax so it's about half a cm lower to keep the glass from distorting their heads, but mostly because hot glue really doesn't hold that well to wax. Don't get me wrong, there were totally advantages to that in the setup process, but there's definitely something to be said for the toothpick application method.

Anywho, pics! Ship In A Bottle )

Edit: Second place, w00t!
soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Creative Process)
Just a few this time; most of my recent work has been to re-stock merchandise at either my Etsy store or White Rabbit.

Felix the Cat )

Winter Storm Dragon )

Canines )

And that brings this picdump to a close. Tune in next time, when I'll post pics of - I'm not entirely sure just now. Well, tune in next time to find out what I'll post pics of, then.

Woo, more amigurumi pics!

Katia Managan from Prequel )

Isaac from Golden Sun )

Black Opal Dragon )

In addition to the black opal dragon, I added another two plain-colored griffins to my Etsy store, one in black and one in brown. I figured I'd skip pics of them for now, though :P With any luck, I'll be adding my Tetris blanket there sometime soon as well.

Quick reminder: I've got offers up at [profile] fandomaid to raise money for Superstorm Sandy relief. My customary offer is up here; I'm also making Dr. Hooves available in the auction.

Edit: Now with Etsy links! (Good grief, self...)
soc_puppet: [Homestuck] God tier "Light" themed Dreamsheep (Sheep of Light)
I've had this image in my head for a while, and the other day I decided I'd finally get to work getting it out of my head.

Cut for large image )

There's a lot I have to say about this image, but I'm going to put that under a separate cut, so people who like to open things separately with the nifty little DW side-arrow thing can do so. Especially if they have bandwidth concerns.

Image thought process )

And, uh, that's all I have to say about this pic, I think. Er. I hope you like it?
soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Creative Process)
Getting very belatedly back to my AnimeIowa 2012 Con Report, here's a set of pictures of the lanterns I painted for the Special Surprise on Friday night.

Image heavy! )

Saturday and Sunday to come eventually, hopefully. Also more pictures, possibly from 2011 and 2010 as well. (Apparently the trick for me is to just skip the photoshoot pics; too many to sort through and label =_= Maybe I'll just zip 'em up, especially if I can figure out how to do a mass re-size.)
soc_puppet: Drawing of a smiling fish skeleton (Fishbone)
Because I have a pig with wings in this set, that's why. Alternately it's Flashback version, since a lot of this stuff go back to stuff I've mentioned or even made before.

This also isn't my best set of photos from a technical standpoint, but whatever, I'll retake stuff later if I have to. Photographing is done for today. I've re-taken all the pictures, and now they look much better, yay! Also, I have finally started making everything the same height instead of the same width. Why the editing program I use "remembers" the previous measurement I used for width rather than height I'm sure I'll never know.

Pigwings )

Dolphin 2.0 )

Bottled Octopus )

Pikachu Lightbulb )

And that's all for now! Tigerstripe griffin almost made it, but its stripes aren't finished yet. Sigh. Maybe next time - hopefully I'll have a Vodka Mutini then as well ::3
soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Creative Process)
Wow, this took way longer than I meant it to. His pics are resized now, though, and ready to share!

Sephy-kins )

Three part photo dump complete! Now I just need to take pictures of everything I've crocheted since then and get started resizing and uploading them 9_9a This could take a while.
soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Crafts)
Forgot some of these the last time I did a pic dump. Oops! Let's get this taken care of...

Bank-style Piggy )

Mascot Bird )

Team Sleuth )

Nurse Redheart )

Charity dog )

Consolation Dragon )

Anyway, that's all for now. Coming soon: More sparkle!dragons, and Sephiroth-pony.

Presenting: crocheted Jig the Goblin, from the series by [ profile] jimhines.

I've other pics to post, but Jig gets his own entry, since otherwise it's going to be an all-you-can-eat bandwidth buffet, and I already learned the hard way that that's a bad idea. Bandwidth cafeteria is much better.

Plush Jig the Goblin )

As a reminder, the crochet pattern for Smudge (with instructions on how to make the fire) is over here. Jig's pattern is not up yet, but should be by the end of the week - feel free to bug me if it isn't. It is very similar to Dobby the House Elf's pattern, though, if you want to give alteration a try.

As a second reminder, I've made my crochet services available for the fannish charity auction [ profile] help_mindanao right over here. So if you think you'd like something crocheted by me, this is a great opportunity to get it!

Ami photo dump time!

Star Dragon )

Charizard )

Angel )

FFVII: Cloud-pony )

Pony Bonuses )

Anywho, I'll try and get these up on [personal profile] hooked_on_anime sometime in the near future. In the mean time, I've got some minor pattern editing to do, and a Serious Question to answer.
soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Crafts)
And here's the big one! Ordered by how many pictures they have, from least to most. PegaCid trounces Dragon by one photo; I guess it's the accessories :P

Dr. Whooves )

Red-Crowned Cranes )

Epic Dragon )

PegaCid )

That's all for now, but I figure it's enough for just about anyone ;) Immediately next on the list is Constellation/TimeTrial dragon, whom I've already started on :3b
soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Creative Process)
Just a small picdump this time. I would've included pictures of Dragon, since it's done, but I ended up not liking any of them :/ He'll be in the next one with Dr. Whooves and PegaCid (and hopefully also wedding cranes).

Mechazawa Beta )

Nitori )

As far as my other projects go:
* Dr. Whoof and Epic Dragon are done and ready for their photo shoots
* PegaCid has his jacket and scarf finished and his mane and tail attached; I still need to make his face and cutie mark, as well as boots and googles
* Wedding cranes are on my to-do list immediately after PegaCid is finished
* They are to be followed by Time Trial/Constellation epic dragon, who will be gorgeous
* Somewhere in there, either before or after TT/C dragon, will be either something more artsy (I'm hoping for Venus de Milo, though I'd also go for nailing down the pattern on Woman With Plants) or something cute (fruit! with faces!)
* Anything else :P
soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Creative Process)
I finished him! And am quite proud of him, too :3b He was delivered to his delighted new owner on Sunday, at which point I collected my money, as well as the "Who do I make next?" answer. (Said answer is PegaCid. Yes, we decided that wings were definitely going to be a Thing. And yes, the fact that they are frequently shipped together also influenced the decision. I'll have to see if I can't get a picture of them together when Cid's done. Ooo, maybe I can crochet an extra feather as well, hit up one of the FiM fic pega-shipping tropes ♥ :D ...Okay, I'm done with the terrible pegasus puns now, really.)

Picture time! )

Next on the crochet agenda, in no particular order:
* Mechazawa Beta
* A new Perry the Platypus, with a side-order of re-vamping the hell out of my first pattern. Seriously, that thing is a mess. I'm surprised so many people were even able to use it!
* PegaCid, as mentioned
* Way too many mini-Squiddles
* Full size Lemonsnout?
* Medium size scalemate?
* CHARITY STUFF - oh gosh that total has gotten so high @_@ That's a personal fundraising record, right there. Jebus.
* Venus de Milo, Scream, Thinker, second Woman With Plant(s) to possibly sell at high-end art gallery (still somewhat blown away by that being a possibility) - definitely writing all the patterns down

And looking into Etsy store details can probably fit between projects somehow.

Anywho, back to the hook! ...Or procrastinating, whichever.
soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Creative Process)
Epic photo dump ahoy! Not only are there three projects I've been sitting on pictures of for far too long, I just finished another three within the past week or so. I've really been booking on my projects lately, which is good :3b

Anywho, pictures.

Pyralspite )

Today I got to work on FFVIIVincent!Pony. Or perhaps I should say back to work, as his basic body has been done since before AI 9_9a Anyway, I've been using this pic as a reference, and he now has hair and some very fancy horseshoes going for him. The gold isn't quite the right color, but I figure it's probably close enough. I plan to tackle his cloak tomorrow, maybe get his eyes and cutie mark on Tuesday? We'll see how things go. My current goal is to have him done by this weekend, so he can go to his new home (and hopefully I'll be able to start work on one of his buddies).

I also wanted to say that I've been thoroughly encouraged to put together some good crochet works and take them by our local ritzy 3D art shop, see if they wouldn't be interested in selling them :) At first I was thinking things along the lines of Tiny Tiger, but my parents suggested I go with Woman With Plant(s) and the like instead. So now I need to think of other paintings to imitate with crochet. Any suggestions, lovely f'list/circle?

Final thing! Just a quick reminder that I've got a charity offer up at [ profile] fandomaid to benefit Somalia, which is suffering from a terrible drought, famine, and cholera outbreak. Please consider bidding and/or offering to show your support, or at least spread the word.
